Hulk Hogan was one of the biggest stars in professional wrestling in the ’80s. He was one of the first wrestlers to cross over from the world of professional wrestling over to the world of pop culture. This earned him a massive fan following in an era without social media. Hogan is still considered one of the greatest of all time, and he is a true legend. Sadly, his past has finally caught up to him, but now his reps are speaking about concerns over his declining health.
Kurt Angle recently stated on his podcast The Kurt Angle Angle Show that Hogan could no longer feel his legs after a nerve cut during his latest back surgery. Angle further added that he has to walk using a crane.
“Hogan had his back surgery again. He had the nerves cut from his lower body. He can’t feel his lower body, so he has to use his cane to walk around. I thought he was using the cane because he has pain in his back. He doesn’t have any pain. He has nothing at all. He can’t feel anything. So now he can’t feel his legs, so he has to walk with a cane. That’s pretty serious, man. I mean, I really feel for Hogan. He put his heart and soul into the business and it ate him up.”
This caused a lot of his fans to show concern for the WWE Hall of Famer who has given his life for this business and was now suffering because of it.
However, Hulk Hogan’s rep said in a statement to Entertainment Today that he is doing fine and “Everything is ok with him.” The rep further told ET that Hogan was able to walk without a crane.
Hulk Hogan recently appeared on RAW’s 30th anniversary where he kicked off the show. Therefore, the news came as a bit of a shock to fans who watched him on television a few days ago. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
